Island filament posts strong demand
Jul '10
Last week, tight supply of island filament continued under strong demand, price movement of island filament slight elevated. Prices of composite island filaments 105D, 225D were 21200 Yuan / ton and 17,200 Yuan / ton, respectively, in Shengze market, an increase of 200-400 Yuan / ton compared with the previous week.

Market sales focused on DTY105D composite filament, as sales of woven suede fabrics are exceptionally hot, providing steady demand for DTY105D composite filament. At present, market sales of DTY225D island composite filament are also good; the filament is blended with polyester DTY75D/72F filament to weave suede fabrics.

In addition, demand for island FDY filament from weaving sector has amplified, as suede fabrics can not only make men's and women's fashion, but can also make home textiles and decorative fabrics, therefore, demand for island filament has no visible off-season.

Now market supply is tight as production capacity is insufficient, plus active sales of downstream suede products, market outlook of island filament is expected to face tight supply and higher price in the near future, due to strong demand from downstream weaving factories.
